Wiggin EU regulation roundup – October 2018

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address Bingo Regions: Europe Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Online Gambling In conjunction with Chris Elliott and Beth French of Wiggin LLP, iGaming Business provides a regulatory snapshot of igaming across the EU. Greece, the Netherlands and Slovakia are among those updatedAUSTRIA Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, poker, casino, bingo and lottery. Operator type: Licences for sports betting and horse race betting are available for private operators on a regional basis within Austria, whereas poker, casino, bingo and lottery are controlled by the monopoly, Casinos Austria, which has exclusive rights until 2027.Status: In 2016, national courts reached conflicting decisions on the compatibility of Austria’s current gambling legislative framework with EU law, which remains unclear. The draft amendments to the Gambling Act, which would introduce ISP-blocking measures and an express provision rendering gambling contracts contrary to the Gambling Act void, has been temporarily withdrawn. It is unclear at this stage whether the initial draft will be republished.BELGIUM Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, poker, casino, bingo and lottery. Operator type: All products are available to private operators except for lotteries, which are reserved exclusively for the monopoly provider. However, online operators need to partner with local casinos in order to satisfy the land-based establishment requirement; alternatively, apply for one of the 34 retail licences (F1 licences) that can be extended to cover online (F1+ licence).Status: There remain valid arguments that the existing regime is incompatible with Belgium’s EU Treaty obligations. On 22 March, 2018, Belgium’s Constitutional Court ruled in favour of an exemption from VAT obligations for online gambling transactions. Active enforcement measures against operators and players are in place. Following a recent ruling by the Constitutional Court that the country’s licensing arrangements are unconstitutional, each type of gambling product will need to be offered through a different URL in order to harmonise the disparity between land-based and online licence conditions..BULGARIA Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, poker, casino, bingo and lottery (excluding raffles and instant lottery games). Operator type: All products are available to private operators except for lotteries, which are reserved exclusively for the monopoly provider.Status: Any operator from an EU/EEA jurisdiction or the Swiss Confederation can apply for a licence. The Bulgarian regulator has awarded approximately 20 licences to date, including to a number of international operators. The government has notified the European Commission of draft amendments to the country’s gambling legislation which, among other things, would introduce stringent restrictions on how gambling products can be advertised. The standstill period ends on 10 September, 2018.CROATIA Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, poker, casino, bingo and lottery. Operator type: All products are available to private operators except for lotteries, which are reserved exclusively for the monopoly provider. Private operators can only be licensed to offer igaming if they obtain a land-based casino or betting licence.Status: Following Croatia’s accession to the EU in 2013, it was understood that it would submit new legislation that was compatible with EU law. However, on 5 March, 2014, the Croatian government notified a draft bill to embolden the position of the monopoly and local operators, giving rise to further incompatibility issues. The receipt of a detailed opinion from the EC stalled the legislative process.CYPRUS Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting and lottery. Operator type: OPAP has a monopoly over lottery operations; sports-betting licences are available to private operators.Status: Cyprus regulated online betting in July 2012, although a licensing regime was not established until 2016. Applications for online sports-betting licences were accepted for a one-month period only from 3 October, 2016. ISPs are obliged to implement blocking measures to prohibit Cypriot residents from accessing unlicensed gambling websites. Cyprus has notified new draft gambling legislation to the EC in response to concerns about the local establishment requirement under the Betting Law and the equal treatment of gambling operators in the country (principally as a result of the exemption afforded to OPAP).CZECH REPUBLIC Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, poker, casino, bingo and lottery. Operator type: EU and EEA-based operators are able to apply for licences.Status: The new gambling regulatory regime entered into force in the Czech Republic on 1 January 2017, allowing EU/EEA companies to enter the market. The licensing regime has been called into question after a number of foreign operators are believed to have withdrawn from the licensing process, citing the current regime as incompatible with EU law. ISP-blocking measures are active in the jurisdiction. DENMARK Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, fantasy sports, horse race betting, poker, casino, bingo and lottery. Operator type: Sports betting, poker and casino licences are available to private operators. Lottery is controlled by the state monopoly.Status: The Danish online gambling regime went live on 1 January, 2012. ISP-blocking measures are active in the jurisdiction and the Danish Gaming Authority has been granted an injunction to block operators and suppliers that have been targeting Danish customers without the requisite licence. Danish political parties have reached an agreement to introduce limits on bonuses. The Ministry of Taxation is understood to be aiming for a 1 January, 2019 implementation, although the exact proposed changes are currently unknown.ESTONIA Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, poker, casino, bingo and lottery. Operator type: Licences for all gambling products are available to private operators save for lotteries, which are reserved exclusively for the monopoly operator.Status: Operators seeking to accept business from players in Estonia must be issued an activity licence for the type of gambling they wish to offer, then an operating permit to provide the services remotely. A blacklist of about 1,100 operators is maintained and updated by local authorities and ISP and payment blocking is in force. Though some operators argue that the regime is still not compatible with EU law, there has been no open challenge by the EC to date.FINLAND Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, poker, casino, bingo and lottery. Operator type: All gambling products are under the exclusive control of the three monopoly providers, Raha-automaattiyhdistys (RAY), Fintoto Oy and Veikkaus Oy. The monopolies merged into one state entity on 1 January, 2017.Status: An ECJ ruling confirmed that Finland’s three monopoly providers are legally permitted, which was subsequently written into law. In November 2013, the EC also withdrew infringement proceedings. Active enforcement measures are in place (restrictive marketing for offshore operators and ISP blocking).FRANCE  Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, poker, bingo and lottery. Operator type: Private operators can obtain online licences for sports betting, horse race betting and poker. The monopoly has exclusive rights to bingo and lottery.Status: A regulated market since the introduction of a licensing regime in 2010, following which the EC withdrew its infringement proceedings. Parliament announced a full review of French gambling legislation in 2016, although little progress has been made to date except for changes to allow for international poker liquidity and provisions relating to the organisation of esports tournaments. The state-owned operator of France’s national lottery games, Française des Jeux (FDJ), is set to be privatised, with broader regulatory changes to the online sector expected to follow.GERMANY Regulated gambling products: Schleswig-Holstein, a small northern-German state, regulates sports betting, horse race betting, poker, casino and bingo. The other 15 states of Germany currently permit only sports betting and horse race betting. Operator type: Private operators can no longer obtain licences in Schleswig-Holstein and those in existence will expire on 30 June, 2019. In the other 15 states, horse race betting licences are available at a regional level but the position surrounding the 20 available sports-betting licences is still uncertain.Status: The licensing regime is in a state of flux. The tender for 20 federal sports-betting licences was aborted following a number of appeals by operators who were not granted licences. The ECJ ruled in 2016 that Germany’s sports-betting regulation was incompatible with EU law and that enforcement actions would be unlawful where none of the 20 licences could, in practice, be acquired. The decision led to calls for comprehensive legal reform of Germany’s gambling legislation. In March 2017, all 16 German states signed amendments to the country’s gambling law; however, on 22 September, 2017, Schleswig-Holstein’s state parliament voted against ratifying these, with North-Rhine Westphalia and Hesse since announcing their intention to follow suit. Without full state support, the intended changes did not take effect, further delaying reform. A Federal Administrative Court ruling on 26 October, 2017, upheld the ban on online casinos and poker. The ruling, which is now the subject of a constitutional complaint, appears to have led to action by local regulators seeking to enforce the prohibition of online casinos by issuing interdiction letters to operators. Payment-blocking initiatives are also being pursued.GREAT BRITAIN Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, poker, casino, bingo and lottery. Operator type: All licences are available to private operators save for lottery, which is reserved exclusively for the monopoly provider, Camelot.Status: Any operator that transacts with, or advertises to, British residents requires a licence from the Gambling Commission. Licensed operators are required to source gambling software from commission-licensed businesses. Since 1 August, 2017, the first use of free plays for remote gaming has been taxed and winnings brought into the duty calculation at the end of the rewagering process. The UK government has announced its intention to increase Remote Gaming Duty at the next budget to cover a shortfall in lost tax revenue resulting from a reduction in maximum stakes on fixed odds betting terminals from £100 to £2.GREECE Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting and lottery. Operator type: All products are exclusively reserved for the monopoly providers, although 24 transitional licences for private operators remain active, with all products permitted.Status: The enabling regulations that implement a Greek online gambling licensing regime are yet to be implemented. In 2012, a ‘transition period’ commenced, whereby the Greek government granted 24 transitional licences to operators, enabling them to keep transacting with Greek residents. In September 2018, the Government published draft amendments to the country’s Gambling Law which would, if implemented in its proposed form, introduce an open licensing regime with unlimited licences, prohibit RNG-based games and maintain the current 35% GGR tax.HUNGARY Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, poker, casino, bingo and lottery. Operator type: Only the state monopolies (Szerencsejáték Zrt. and Magyar Lóversenyfogadást-SzervezőKft) and local concession companies can apply for a licence.Status: Amendments to Hungarian gambling law came into force on 1 October, 2015, and allow only two land-based casinos to hold remote casino concessions. The regulator has since issued fines, a number of which have been challenged, against unlicensed operators that continue to target the market. In June 2017, the ECJ determined Hungary’s gambling regime to be incompatible with Article 56 TFEU. A subsequent ECJ decision in February 2018 ruled against the Hungarian requirement that online gambling operators must have a land-based licence to offer online gambling services to Hungarian citizens, further strengthening arguments that the current regime is incompatible with EU law. The Hungarian Ministry of Justice has stated its intention to continue to seek to enforce the existing regime despite the most recent ruling. A draft bill that would introduce payment-blocking measures was notified to the EC on 15 December, 2017, although the bill does not appear to have been adopted to date.IRELAND Regulated gambling products: Online gaming is not specifically accounted for in Ireland’s outdated legislation and as such is currently unregulated. Operator type: Online betting regulated since August 2015.Status: Ireland is currently updating its legislation, which will create a comprehensive igaming regime. In January 2018, the Irish Cabinet gave the go-ahead to draft a new version of a bill that was first proposed in 2013. Ireland’s opposition party tabled its own legislation in response, citing a lack of progress by the government on its own bill. Amendments to the Gaming and Lotteries Act 1956 have also been proposed. Legislative progress is not expected until late 2018 at the earliest.ITALY Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, poker, casino, bingo and lottery. Operator type: Fully regulated market. Status: The Stability Law 2016, passed in December 2015, introduces various measures affecting the remote gambling industry, including tax changes and a tender process for the award of 120 new online gaming licences. The tender process for applications closed on 19 March, 2018. On 7 August, 2018, the Italian parliament approved a decree which prohibits gambling advertising and sponsorship. The advertising ban took effect on 14 July 2018, although ongoing advertising contracts remain valid until the earlier of their expiration date or 14 July 2019. The sponsorship ban will apply from 1 January 2019.LUXEMBOURG Regulated gambling products: Lottery. Operator type: Monopoly.Status: The general prohibition on gambling appears sufficiently wide to cover all forms of online gambling.MALTA Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, poker, casino, bingo and lottery. Operator type: Private operators can apply for a local licence (except for lottery products).Status: Malta has approved a new Gaming Act that replaces all existing gaming legislation with a single piece of legislation, supplemented by secondary legislation. The Gaming Act, together with directives and regulations, is effective as of 1 August, 2018.NETHERLANDS Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, poker, casino, bingo and lottery. Operator type: Monopoly for all products.Status: The Dutch parliament’s lower house approved the Remote Gambling Bill in 2016, which will introduce an online gambling licensing regime. The legislation will impose a 29% GGR tax on both online and land-based operators.  In September 2018, the Government opened a public consultation on the implementing regulations of the Remote Gambling Bill, which will be followed by debate and a vote in the Senate, expected in early 2019. It is understood that operators that have previously been fined by the Dutch regulator will not be eligible for a licence. In the interim, the regulator continues to implement enforcement measures against operators targeting Dutch players, having imposed recent sanctions against three well-known operators.NORWAY Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting and lottery. Operator type: Online gambling is reserved for the two monopoly providers, Norsk Tipping and Norsk Rikstoto.Status: The monopoly has extended its offering to include live betting, online bingo and casino games in an attempt to redirect traffic from unlicensed sites. In March 2017, the government published a long-awaited white paper on how best to regulate the gambling sector, which proposed that the gambling monopoly remain in place and no licensing system be introduced. The Norwegian regulator continues to step up enforcement efforts against unregulated operators, local banks and payment service providers. On 4 June, 2018, the Ministry of Culture notified a draft regulation to the European Commission that would establish payment-blocking measures. The standstill period will end on 5 September, 2018. The European Gaming and Betting Association is understood to have filed a legal challenge against the proposed measures.POLAND Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, casino and poker. Operator type: Betting licences are available for companies with a representative in Poland. Casino and poker are reserved for a state monopoly.Status: Legislation enacted 1 January, 2012, permits betting. Following the approval of various amendments to the Gambling Act, online gaming (including poker) is no longer prohibited as of 1 April, 2017, although the exclusive rights to offer such products are reserved for a state monopoly. Provisions that provide for the establishment of a blacklist of unlicensed operators and ISP and payment blocking came into force on 1 July, 2017. The blacklist contains more than 1,000 domain names. PORTUGAL Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, poker, casino, bingo and lottery. Operator type: Any EU/EEA operator can apply to be granted a licence for online gambling. Lottery games and land-based fixed-odds sports betting remain reserved for a monopoly.Status: A regulated market since 2015. Although operators can now apply for licences, their Portuguese revenue streams will be subject to comparatively high tax rates, particularly in sports betting, which is subject to an 8-16% tax on turnover. In 2015, the RGA filed a state-aid case with the EC challenging the Portuguese betting tax as breaking EU trade rules. On 30 January, 2018, the Portuguese gambling regulator published a call for contributions on the review of the current regulatory framework for online gambling.ROMANIA Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, casino, bingo and lottery. Operator type: Any operator from an EU/EEA jurisdiction or the Swiss Confederation can apply for a licence. Lottery games remain reserved for the monopoly.Status: The Romanian government passed legislation in 2014 that allows entities within the EU to apply for a licence, imposes a reform on licence fees and eliminates many (but not all) of the tax burdens placed on player revenues. The Gambling Law (as amended) introduced a legal framework for a fully regulated online gambling market and requires licences to be held by online gambling operators, as well as software providers, payment processors, affiliates and testing labs. After some delay, the secondary legislation that fully implemented the new licensing regime came into force on 26 February, 2016. The National Office for Gambling in Romania published a blacklist of unlicensed gambling operators in July 2015.SLOVAKIA  Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, poker, casino, bingo and lottery. Operator type: Monopoly, save that land-based sports-betting operators can offer services online owing to a legal loophole.Status: In November 2016, a bill amending the existing gambling legal framework was approved. The amendments, which entered into force on 1 January, 2017, included the introduction of ISP and payment blocking of illegal online gambling offerings in the Slovak territory. Slovakia’s Financial Directorate began to perform its supervisory function over these blocking measures from 1 July, 2017. New draft legislation has been notified to the EC with a view to liberalising the market in 2019. The proposed legislation, if passed, will allow private EU/EEA operators to apply for online gambling licences.SLOVENIA Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, poker, casino, bingo and lottery. Operator type: Online gambling must be operated by land-based casinos or lotteries and, as a result, only the monopoly holds online licences in Slovenia.Status: Draft amendments to the Gaming Act were published in 2015, which aim to remove the current local establishment requirement. The proposal is yet to be submitted to the Slovenian parliament, although it is expected to be adopted in 2018. Whether any amendments will introduce a formal licensing system remains unclear.SPAIN Regulated gambling products: Private operators can apply for licences for all gambling products save for lottery. Operator type: Private operators can apply for licences for all gambling products save for lottery.Status: First online licences were issued on 1 June, 2012. Operators must hold a general licence and a specific licence, both issued by the National Gambling Commission, for each activity. In June 2015, 10 new licences were awarded, the first since 2012. In addition, 25 online slot permits were issued to new and existing operators. This followed the approval of the regulation of slots and betting exchanges. The Spanish regulatory body DGOJ has formally opened its third call for tender, with applications for online licences accepted from operators for a period of one year, until 18 December, 2018. On 16 January, 2018, online poker liquidity sharing between Spain and France came into effect. The 2018 parliamentary budget was passed into law in June 2018, resulting in a reduction to gambling tax effective as of 1 July, 2018.SWEDEN Regulated gambling products: Sports betting, horse race betting, poker, bingo and lottery. Operator type: Only public-benefit organisations, the horse racing industry and the state lottery may obtain a licence. No licences are available for private operators, although this will change with the introduction of the new legal framework.Status: The Swedish parliament adopted a bill that will introduce an online-gambling licensing regime. The law is expected to enter into force on 1 January, 2019, with the licence application process open as of1 August, 2018.WIGGIN is a law firm dedicated to supporting the media, entertainment and gaming sectors.

Meet the one club Man – Louis Deacon

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS For Back Issues Contact John Denton Services at 01733-385-170 visit Would you like to sign up to Rugby World’s excellent weekly email newsletter? Click here. Deacon’s job both with Leicester and England is not to gallop into open field or make the killer pass that might come from a player like Lawes, but to do the hard, unseen graft that every rugby team needs. Every successful England side has had at least one heavy tractor in the engine room and Deacon is now fulfilling that role.“Courtney and I complement each other very well. We’re very different players, who do different jobs, but you need that in a team,” Deacon says. “It’s always been one of my goals to be involved in a World Cup. In 2007 I got down to the last few players before being cut and I was massively disappointed. Things moved on and my international career stuttered a little because of my injuries.“It’s great to know that the England coaches believe I can do a job for my country now. With the Leicester connection they’re probably in the best place to judge me. I played most of the 2010 Six Nations carrying injuries and it wears you down. Now I feel the best I have done for a long time.”That state of body and mind has stood him in good stead. And with more chances in an England shirt to come, perhaps everyone will start to hold him in the same regard as Johnson – like Deacon, the personification of a one-club man.This article appeared in the November 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.center_img Leicester Tigers and England Lok – Louis MoodyThe professional era has made the concept of a ‘one-club man’ seem as outdated as cotton shirts and players having a pint (or ten) with the opposition after a match. But one player in the England set-up is happy to buck the trend.Born and raised in Leicester, it seems that Louis Deacon was destined to play for the Tigers and, since joining them as a teenager, he has fought his way to become a first-choice lock for England. He says: “It was a dream to play for Leicester from a young age and I never thought about leaving a club I was once desperate to play for. I don’t want to leave unless I have to, and I hope they feel the same.“I feel lucky to be at Leicester. The club has a great culture and great traditions. It’s the only club I’ve ever been at so it’s the only one I know, but I think it’s the best club around.“It’s the players within Leicester that drive the work ethic. Leicester is renowned for the way the boys train, the contact and how physical it is. In the early days I never held back in training, but now, as I’ve got older, I’ve learnt to back off a little and try to prepare as well as I possibly could for the game as that is more important.”His connection with the England manager goes back to his early days at the club when Martin Johnson was the man standing between him and a place in the first team. So it’s no wonder Johnson always turns to Deacon when he is fit – he knows the lock so well.“Ben (Kay) and Johnno were the top two and I was in behind, so I learnt so much from them – it was great experience,” says Deacon. “At Leicester this year it’s the same and we have more second-rows than we’ve ever done, so I’m having the same done to me.“As a young guy training against players like those two I regarded training as my game. They’d come off the game at the weekend stiff and sore for our Tuesday session and I’d be there fresh and ready to go. That’s how it is and that tends to drive the team.”One of the things driving England is a club culture that has come to the fore in New Zealand. When the going gets tough the Class of 2011 will close ranks and stay loyal to one another. Deacon says: “Since Johnno took over that’s been something he’s really focused on. In the past you didn’t really know the other players you were in the England squad with. You’d just talk about rugby and that was it, but now getting to know the guys better has been beneficial for all of us.We wanted a club culture and that is happening. We all know each other very well and we have a good England culture.“That culture comes across when we’re having tough times on the pitch. Look at our opening game in the World Cup against Argentina – some teams would have lost that having been behind after 60 minutes, like we were.”It is a testament to Deacon’s quiet nature that most rugby fans probably wouldn’t regard him as England’s first-choice lock, alongside Courtney Lawes, but it’s clear that Johnson does. Deacon has been involved in every RBS 6 Nations match in the past two seasons, even though he missed the 2010 summer tour of Australasia and the subsequent autumn Tests because of a back injury. Those injuries have stopped him probably doubling his tally of England caps.“Back in 2010 when I missed the tour to Australia it was difficult to see myself playing for England again,” admits Deacon. “But things can change quickly if you’re patient and get your head down. When you’re out of a team that’s the time to work hard. That period was a great time for me because I came back in the best shape I could have done. The last 12 to 18 months have gone really well for me.” Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK. Or you may prefer the digital edition on your MAC, PC, or iPad.last_img read more

Fe y salud: un nuevo año de bienestar para el…

first_imgFe y salud: un nuevo año de bienestar para el cuerpo, la mente y el espíritu Submit a Job Listing Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Curate Diocese of Nebraska Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector Pittsburgh, PA Director of Music Morristown, NJ [Episcopal News Service] ¿Qué aspecto tiene un nuevo comienzo?Para muchos el Año Nuevo es para planificar cambios positivos y forjar nuevas metas para el bienestar: dietas sanas para el corazón, regímenes cardiovasculares o nuevas matrículas en el gimnasio. Pero ¿qué pasa con la salud del otro “corazón”? ¿Cuán a menudo necesita que le recuerden que  hay que nutrir y ejercitar el espíritu?Cuando el difunto Dr. George Sheehan, un filósofo del jogging, impartía charlas motivacionales a corredores, con frecuencias citaba a la esposa de un converso a las carreras: “mi esposo solía ser metodista. Ahora es corredor”. Correr puede no ser una religión, pero Sheehan diría que es un retiro, un lugar para comunicarse con Dios y con usted mismo, un evento para la renovación psicológica y espiritual”.Para prepararse para un reciente retiro de una semana de duración sobre la salud integral del clero, la Rda. Ronnie Willerer, rectora asociada de la iglesia de Nuestro Salvador [Church of Our Saviour] en Jacksonville, Florida, se comprometió a caminar todos los días con su esposo valiéndose de su podcast  “Camine y siéntase bien” de CREDO, un programa de salud y bienestar de la Iglesia Episcopal. La serie del programa consiste de cuatro semanas de reflexiones sobre el mensaje del Salmo 139 —“maravillosamente he sido formado”— para acompañar una caminata de 30 minutos.“En el pasado, siempre hacía ejercicios para perder unas cuantas libras o como un tiempo que compartía con mi marido. Pero en los últimos dos años no hemos actuado al respecto de manera tan deliberada”, dijo Willerer en una entrevista reciente para Episcopal News Service. “Era una buena excusa, no, no una excusa, una buena razón. Las meditaciones demostraron llevarme en una dirección diferente que el mero ejercicio, porque las meditaciones se concentraban en la magnificencia de la creación de tu cuerpo y en la salud de tu cuerpo”.Discutieran o no la meditación diaria, ella y su marido encontraron que la caminata de 30 minutos era un tiempo para entablar una conversación profunda y hacer una reconexión. Sus feligreses comenzaron a seguir el programa del podcast y han estado usando muchos de los materiales de CREDO para los retiros de mujeres y a comprometerse personalmente a combinar los ejercicios físicos con el bienestar espiritual.Elizabeth McKay Moosbrugger, entrenadora personal y profesional certificada, es una de las redactoras del programa. Para Moosbrugger, el ejercicio y la oración marchan juntos. Durante sus trotes matutinos, ella repite como un mantra la oración de Osvaldo de Nortumbria.“Yo digo, ‘Todo lo que soy, Señor, lo pongo en tus manos’ y pienso en todos los papeles que he desempeñado en mi vida”, le dijo ella a Episcopal News Service, “A eso sigue ‘todo lo que hago’, y pienso en ese día que tengo por delante y lo que en él debo hacer ajustada a mi horario, y pongo todas esas cosas en manos de Dios… Me desacelera el cerebro y me da la sensación de estar conectada con Dios. Las cosas que parecían abrumadoras, ya no lo parecen al final de mi carrera”.Sus colaboraciones a la serie examinan la manera en que el cuerpo funciona como un don de Dios, la manera en que el cuerpo se nutre de alimento, trabajo y relaciones; y lo que eso significa para Dios.“Es refrescante salir de esa experiencia de apoyar y amar a nuestros cuerpos”, afirmó ella. “Eso es así especialmente para los ministros, porque necesitan fuerzas para apoyar a sus comunidades”.La Rda. Fairbairn Powers, de la iglesia episcopal de Santa Inés [St. Agnes] en Little Falls, Nueva Jersey, corre en el Triatlón de los campeonatos mundiales de la Union Age Group y de Sprint World en Auckland, Nueva Zelanda.“Esta combinación de bienestar íntimo y externo es esencial para el ministerio”, dijo a ENS la Rda. Fairbairn Powers, sacerdote encargada de la iglesia episcopal de Santa Inés [St. Agnes’] en Little Falls, Nueva Jersey. “Me atrevo a decir que muchas personas no se ejercitan tanto por el bien de sus cuerpos como por [descargarse de] sus emociones —todas esas cosas del alma. Como sacerdotes [el ejercicio] hace posible hacerle frente a [los problemas] con los que tenemos que lidiar en nuestras parroquias”.Powers ofrece una oración intercesora por un feligrés en cada vuelta de su diaria rutina de nado, bicicleta o carrera. La triple atleta de 73 años comenzó a correr maratones y a hacer esquí de fondo cuando estaba en los cuarenta. Recorrió a retazos todo el Camino de los Apalaches en sus aventuras campestres en su cincuentena y sesentena. Y ahora en sus setenta y tantos, terminó recientemente un Triatlón internacional de los campeonatos de la Union Age Group y de Sprint World, en Auckland, Nueva Zelanda, quedando en tercer lugar entre los competidores de su edad.Para un artículo del 2 de enero de la Diócesis Episcopal de Newark, sobre su teoría acerca del valor del ejercicio físico para el clero, Powers, lanzó una pregunta acerca del ejercicio en la lista de correos electrónicos del clero diocesano: ¿Se ejercitan regularmente los miembros, y ello les aporta un cambio significativo a su vida parroquial, personal y familiar?Ella escribió que más de 35 respuestas llegaron de personas que corren y hacen jogging (el Rdo. Ed Hasse encabeza su lista con 26 maratones y los que van sumándose —él ora mientras corre por las mañanas), así como los nadadores (el Rdo. John Hartnett encabeza este grupo, al nadar dos kilómetros y medio cada mañana y encontrar que esto “me da una paz que rara vez experimento en el resto del día”).  La diácona Nancy Read encuentra que su carrera larga “libera mi alma y alimenta mi cuerpo”.Una sacerdote cambió su programa diario para darle tiempo cada mañana a la oración, la meditación y a levantar pesas en el gimnasio luego de una “advertencia” médica. Muchos caminan; una pareja monta a caballo; algunos practican yoga, buceo y baile; varios de ellos son ciclistas. Al menos cuatro, incluidas Powers y la Rda. Cathy Deats, son triatletas.Un sacerdote que hace senderismo al menos una vez a la semana, dijo “es como la oración… y enriquece mi relación con el Creador”.Para Powers, el mensaje común fue que el ejercicio es un tiempo para centrarse, para entrar en conexión con Dios, y que el ejercicio regular da lugar a que el cuerpo, la mente y el espíritu mejoren. Unánimemente, el clero [diocesano] le dijo a Powers que el ejercicio los afirmaba y los hacía llegar a un estado en el que realmente podían orar.“Creo que somos seres integrados, de manera que nuestro cuerpo, nuestra mente y nuestro espíritu funcionan juntos”, dijo a ENS el obispo Bishop Mark Hollingsworth Jr. de la diócesis episcopal de Ohio. “Cuando me mantengo atento a mis disciplinas de ejercicio y estudio y oración, soy más saludable en los tres aspectos”.El obispo Mark Hollingsworth Jr. de la diócesis episcopal de Ohio, lleva a cabo la recaudación anual de la Vuelta Ciclista del Obispo.Hollingsworth, que es un ciclista infatigable, lleva a cabo, a través de toda la diócesis de Ohio, la Vuelta Ciclista del Obispo, la campaña de recaudación anual que atrae a episcopales de todas las edades y capacidades. Él también va en bicicleta a las convenciones generales  —incluida una travesía de 6.400 kilómetros desde Anaheim, California, hasta el Centro denominacional de la Iglesia Episcopal en Nueva York.“Las endorfinas cambian nuestra perspectiva, pero yo creo también que cuando ando en bicicleta abandono mi manera de ser”, afirmó. “Me concentro en bicicletear, en ese ritmo y en mi respiración, y ello me despeja la cabeza. En un sentido me saca de mi rutina y de los pensamientos en que habitualmente tiendo a caer cuando me concentro en los problemas difíciles”.Katharine Jefferts Schori, la obispa primada, ha afirmado que algunas de las más importantes iniciativas de los últimos años para el bienestar del clero han conllevado el tener presente la salud y el equilibrio, incluidos programas como Volver a Empezar [Fresh Start] y la labor de CREDO.En una entrevista en enero de 2010 con Peter K., consejero de salud y experto en un estilo de vida saludable, Jefferts Schori dijo, “La conciencia de la salud en su más amplio sentido es realmente de lo que se ocupa la Iglesia. Jesús dijo que él vino para que pudiéramos tener vida y vida en abundancia. La vida abundante se refiere a las relaciones restauradas con nosotros mismos, con Dios y con nuestros prójimos”.Corredora, senderista y alpinista durante mucho tiempo, Jefferts Schori es ella misma un modelo de estilo de vida saludable. “Cuidar el cuerpo que tenemos… es parte esencial de cuidar el equipo con el que hemos de ministrar al mundo… ¿Amas lo que haces, amas y respetas la herramienta que te han dado en tu cuerpo?, pregunta ella. “Decidir cómo trato a mi cuerpo, como empleo mi tiempo, como encuentro esparcimiento, es un modo de servir y un modo de estar preparada para servir”.El concentrarse en cómo el bienestar corporal puede sostener la mente, el cuerpo y el espíritu puede ayudar a las parroquias a asumir un enfoque holístico de la vida: fomentando la armonía conyugal, mitigando los factores laborales que causan estrés y proporcionando un tiempo de actividad en familia. Las iglesias a través del país están usando la preparación física como un instrumento para divulgar el evangelio y edificar la comunidad. Las parroquias están incluyendo clases de yoga, caminatas y Zumba [un programa de danza inspirada en música latina] en un esfuerzo por hacer que sus congregaciones sean más sanas y por hacer de la iglesia un nexo para las necesidades de los feligreses; por ejemplo, la iglesia episcopal de San Juan-La Gracia [St. John’s-Grace] en Búfalo, Nueva York, ofrece clases de danza moderna y de ballet. El Centro de la Vida Parroquial [Parish Life Center] en la iglesia episcopal de San Juan en Memphis, Tennessee, auspicia campamentos de baloncesto y fútbol para niños, fútbol americano de banderines y carreras conmemorativas de 5K.Para el Rdo. Scott Richardson de la iglesia episcopal de Santa María Virgen [St. Mary the Virgin] en San Francisco, el ejercicio tiene más que ver con la comunidad y la camaradería que con el deber o con un esfuerzo doloroso. Sus feligreses  se reúnen semanalmente para hacer caminatas a través del Puente la Puerta de Oro [Golden Gate Bridge] y Campo Crissy; él camina diariamente con su esposa y sus perros, y disfruta frecuentes partidas de golf con sus hermanos.“Si estoy físicamente saludable, vigilando mi ingesta de azúcar, absteniéndome de tomar bebidas alcohólicas, eso resulta un buen ejemplo para mi congregación”, le dijo él a ENS. “La gente reciben las bendiciones [que se derivan] de eso en su propia vida, y uno nunca sabe qué influencias llevan a las personas a cambiar”.Más de 1.250 personas —laicos y clérigos— se han comprometido con el programa “Camine y siéntase bien” de CREDO, el comienzo de un nuevo hábito de equilibrio espiritual y físico.“Haya estado o no el ejercicio entre sus perspectivas, esto es una gran plataforma para las personas que creen que algo debe cambiar en sus vidas”, dijo Moosbrugger. “Comenzamos con estas altas metas y luego llueve o se enferma un niño y algo nos saca de nuestra rutina diaria. ¿Qué nos trae de vuelta a las cosas que queremos hacer y que son buenas para uno?  Para mí, llegar a darme cuenta de que he sido formada maravillosamente constituyó una parte importante de mi vida de ejercicios”.Jefferts Schori está de acuerdo. En su entrevista con Peter K, dijo: “No creo que no tengamos tiempo para hacer ejercicio. La mayoría de las personas, cuando tienen una rutina de actividad física, descubren que disponen de más tiempo y energía para el resto de su vida diaria”.– Sarah Moïse Young es una reportera independiente radicada en Charleston, Carolina del Sur.

Episcopal Divinity School to stop granting degrees in June 2017

first_img July 22, 2016 at 9:53 pm My late father was a graduate of ETS, as it was known in the 1930s when he attended, and he used that education to follow his calling as an Episcopal priest for over 60 years. He would simply be heartbroken to hear this news; for his family, nothing more need be said. July 23, 2016 at 10:19 am In the late 1960s there was the Pusey Report which told the church we had too many seminaries and the model was unsustainable. Philadelphia was the only seminary to close by merging with ETS to form EDS. We have an odd system where he seminaries are independent educational entities which are not funded or controlled in any way by the denomination. If the model was unsutainable 40 years ago we should expect to see the crumbling of this educational model which while still the “ideal” is far too expensive for students, dioceses and parishes to absorb. Comments are closed. July 22, 2016 at 9:12 am I agree completely with Tracy Lawrence, Arthur House and others who seem to feel as I do that it is fundamentally the transformation of the Episcopal Church into a left-wing social welfare organization with only minimal interest in saving souls that has caused the difficulties at EDS. Do we all remember Katherine Ragsdale who seven years ago referred to abortion as a “blessing” and whose appointment to the Presidency of EDS “thrilled” the then-Episcopal bishop of Massachusetts? Just as many lifelong Episcopalians have left and continue to leave the church in disgust, so has the pool of potential EDS students presumably shrunk in recent years when they see the school specializing in courses like “Feminist Theories and Theologizing.” EDS has brought upon itself its own financial problems as have so many other Episcopal institutions but none of those responsible seem to care. Julie Watt Faqir says: Theological Education Comments (44) Submit a Job Listing Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET James Yazell says: July 21, 2016 at 8:28 pm I’m sorry to see EDS fail as a stand-alone institution, and I hope there is a meaningful future for it. But I share the concerns of those who believe that the church has transitioned too far in becoming an agent of socio-political advocacy, and that EDS has played a not insignificant role in that transition. We must always, of course, have a positive social conscience, but if we continue to evolve into a politically partisan action group , we will surrender any claim to be part of a universal church. “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and to God that things that are God’s.” July 21, 2016 at 3:47 pm Is the Church planning to get out of the religious business altogether, and just be a social advocacy group? Heidi Haverkamp says: July 23, 2016 at 4:48 pm It is a good thing that Jesus and the early church did not make decisions based on money and prosperity! Maybe the trustees should consult Donald Trump since he is “the only one who can fix it?” The alumni certainly do not agree with the manner in which the trustees went about making this decision. Karyn Webb says: July 22, 2016 at 4:06 am Don, what about facilitating the worker-priest model which you have epitomized? Since knowing you in Shreveport in the 1970’s, I’ve wondered why there weren’t more priests in secular roles. The answer is that our institutions were too heavily invested in training us to do one thing! Even the suggestion of a non-parish based ministry has been met with shock and awe in my experience. Ironically, it’s why campus ministries are the first to be unfounded in stressed diocesan budgets.Bob StephensonVTS 1976 July 21, 2016 at 8:33 pm …the teaching ministry is dying all over our church…the most nourishing…thy kingdom (must) come (of course thy will be done)… Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rev.

There is an unspoken agenda here. Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ July 22, 2016 at 6:03 pm What are the chances that these buildings/real estate will be used for low income/middle income housing, a sore need in Cambridge MA? July 21, 2016 at 7:03 pm I support this decision, having been on the board and the Director of Development. EDS has some uniquenesses raising awareness of the oppression our society inflicts on various minorities. It also provides space to live in community where these awarenesses are reflected upon. If we can support the uniquenesses of this wonderful place, and let other members of the BTI handle the other educational tasks, it would be a good outcome. Perhaps something like the Yale Divinity School/Berkeley Divinity School model adapted to EDS’s strengths.

Director of Music Morristown, NJ Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, was formed in 1974 through the merger of the Cambridge-based Episcopal Theological School and the Philadelphia Divinity School. It is one of the smallest of the 10 accredited seminaries of the Episcopal Church. Photo: Episcopal Divinity School[Episcopal Divinity School press release] Episcopal Divinity School will cease to grant degrees at the end of the upcoming academic year, the seminary’s board of trustees decided July 21 on a 11-4 vote. During the next year, the board will explore options for EDS’s future, some of which were suggested by a specially convened Futures Task Force to make plans for EDS’s future.“A school that has taken on racism, sexism, heterosexism, and multiple interlocking oppressions is now called to rethink its delivery of theological education in a new and changing world,” said the Very Rev. Gary Hall ’76, chairman of the board, in introducing the resolution. “Ending unsustainable spending is a matter of social justice.”The options suggested to the task force include merging with another theological seminary, establishing a center for Abrahamic studies, becoming a center for continuing education, fostering lay ministry, and using the seminary’s assets to fund scholarships for seminarians devoted to working on issues of peace and justice.“It is clear to us that if EDS’s special commitment to working for social justice and the full inclusion of all of God’s people in our common life is to endure, we need to act quickly while the seminary still has sufficient assets to bring to bear in the next phase of its life,” Hall said. “In fact, our commitment to just compensation for all involved was a prime impetus for acting now. Today we have adequate resources for student, faculty, and staff transitions. Given current financial trajectories, five years down the road we would not. We can do it right if we do it now.”No faculty or staff members will be laid off during the upcoming academic year, and all students, including EDS’s final incoming class, which arrives on campus next month, will be “taught out,” Hall said. “This means that we will contract with another seminary or seminaries to accept our students at full credit and we will make sure that students do not bear the expense of this transition.”Bonnie Anderson, vice chair of the board and former president of the Episcopal Church’s House of Deputies, characterized the vote as “a sad but hopeful moment.”“We understand that people will grieve this decision,” said Anderson who received an honorary doctorate from EDS in 2006. “It is the end of a significant phase in the life of a significant institution that has made incredible contributions to the life of our church. But by choosing this course now, we are in a much stronger position to ensure EDS’s legacy.”EDS, which was formed in 1974, through the merger of the Cambridge-based Episcopal Theological School and the Philadelphia Divinity School, is one of the smallest of the 10 accredited seminaries of the Episcopal Church, and had long faced financial challenges that were depleting its endowment.“The school is weakened each day by its ongoing deficit — the future mission of the school is losing about $4,380 per day, or $133,000 per month,” wrote Anthony Ruger, former senior research fellow at the Center for the Study of Theological Education at Auburn Theological Seminary in a report to the board in May. “The intermediate and long term viability of EDS as a quality accredited institution is genuinely threatened. The trustees have both the fiduciary and moral responsibility to see that EDS’s mission is perpetuated, sustained, and strengthened.”EDS’s investments are currently valued at approximately $53 million plus its campus. More than half of the endowment is restricted.Ruger, an expert on financial sustainability in theological schools, presented numerous models to the board suggesting that even unusual increases in enrollment and fundraising coupled with significant budget cuts were unlikely to provide a long-term solution to EDS’s financial problems, leaving the seminary in a gradually worsening position to find new partners or begin new initiatives.“We believe there are new, bold and innovative ways for us to forward God’s mission in this new day and context,” Hall said. “We also believe that living into those new opportunities requires that we stop doing some unsustainable things now.”Debate at the meeting was intense, with Pamela Conrad, the student representative, and the Rev. Joan M. Martin, the faculty representative, who have voice, but not vote on the board, pressing the trustees to adopt a longer timeline in making its decision and to provide more details about the possible shape of the ongoing discernment process.“Justice is never for sale. And justice always operates at a deficit,” Conrad said.Dennis Stark, the board’s treasurer, said he “enthusiastically” supported the resolution. “We are spending six million a year from our endowment, and 30 percent of that is above a reasonable amount,” Stark said.The Rev. Frank Fornaro ‘96, interim dean and president of EDS, announced after the vote that he would resign in mid-November. “I totally disagree with this resolution,” he said.Hall said the board would have the details of its teach-out and faculty compensation plans completed no later than the first day of classes, Sept. 7. July 22, 2016 at 11:11 am As a lay Episcopalian, who has been disappointed by the Church itself in Massachuessetts for a variety of reasons, I find this very very sad. Brother Tupper, TSSF says: Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC July 22, 2016 at 4:11 pm I find it stunning that a theological school with an endowment of $53 million dollars and a valuable campus neighboring Harvard University can’t figure out how to run a degree-granting program that attracts more than 35 students. The Episcopal Church and other religious bodies have a desperate need for theologically educated members, including clergy paid and unpaid. What have the board and faculty been doing instead of discerning and meeting the needs of the 21st century church? July 22, 2016 at 3:32 am Tragic! I predicted this 20 years ago. The reaction then said it will happen because it was a wreck looking for a place to happen. And now the wreck continues. Maybe what is needed is a total overhaul of the people involved. – that was the problem years ago and it apparently continues to be the problem. Those involved can’t/won’t/don’t know how to handle the responsibility they have taken on and it is too much of a threat to the current occupants of these seats to bring in people who could make a difference. – so people come and go, many after having been seriously hurt – and the institution takes another step down. What is majorly lacking is truth! There are a lot of words and romanticizing of ministry and more, but the truth of this history must be told before needed healing happens if EDS will ever be anything except an institution spending its assets while it is shrinking. God and God’s work – chased away? So what will be put in its place? All the ‘justice’ talk sounds nice, but EDS has crushed and destroyed a whole lot of people in the name of ‘social justice’. And turned its back on substantial programs while instituting questionable ones. It is an institution which needs to survive doing God’s work, Can it overcome and correct its turn down the road to oblivion and an occasional mention in Episcopal Church history! Featured Events susan zimmerman says: Episcopal Divinity School to stop granting degrees in June 2017 Future plans for Boston-area seminary are still to be determined July 28, 2016 at 2:42 am Some people identify as Christians first, others identify by a denomination first. I wonder if being challenged to “what we are first” misses the mark? I believe it is a both/and experience of God and Church. I am an Episcopal/Anglican Christian because I came to encounter Jesus Christ through a parish community, and I value that unique spiritual experience. Perhaps EDS as well as the former Seabury-Western gradually lost valuing that, and became blended with other traditions or movements. Both seminaries closing are a great loss in many ways for spiritual formation in training for ministry. Brother Tupper says: July 21, 2016 at 3:11 pm I am grieving the end of EDS, as I have known it. My seminary education has had a major, positive impact on my life. My time at EDS was truly transformational and I remain grateful for the experience, for the faculty and staff, and for my fellow students. Duane Crabtree says: Tracy Lawrence says: Selena Smith says: Donald Heacock says: July 21, 2016 at 6:32 pm I share Joan Murray’s grief, as well I echo her appreciation for the transformative experience of her theological education. My time at EDS was challenging, exciting, and sometimes hard, intellectually and spiritually. It was a place where everything was examined and questioned, but always in a spirit of community, fellowship, and prayer. I met many men and women I admire to this day. It was not a trade school for parish ministry, rather it was a place where we learned to think theologically, and bring that theology to bear on the real world. I trust that the legacy will endure and, perhaps, the beloved community that gathered year after year will find a new expression in a changing world.

But it too will run out of money.New England is too poor now to support educating anyone in “ministry” expecting a paycheck and benefits. Parishes are shrinking and “secular” sports consume youth’s hours on Sundays. Too many online options elsewhere, and stagnant wages and the erosion of interest rates (Federal Reserve sets rate) have doomed many of our older places. The arts and music, if not preaching, will thrive though, as we all “migrate” to new place or get left behind. How can one repay $50K at 6.8 percent on a 20K salary? One cannot.I appreciated the architecture and quiet of the EDS Library, before it was sold off, and before Jesuits moved away. I benefited from the BTI exchange and took a terrific class about prayer practices.

Rector Smithfield, NC In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Marceline Donaldson says: July 21, 2016 at 6:10 pm Perhaps justice is best practiced and taught outside of institutional seminaries? We simply can’t continue to support institutions that need the overhead of something like a residential seminary. It’s not good stewardship in this day and age. I mourn the loss of these places – I loved the year I spent living and studying at Seabury-Western. But Jesus doesn’t need brick and mortar seminaries for his gospel, for his justice, or for his mercy – he needs hearts, minds, hands, innovation, and entrepreneurship. The Holy Spirit will see us through, just as She did the apostles in the book of Acts, if we keep following, praying, teaching, and breaking bread together. December 19, 2016 at 8:43 pm Yes, but do they also pay for it? Brad Purdom says: July 21, 2016 at 6:57 pm I agree. July 23, 2016 at 11:09 am As a former student at ETS in the seventies, now in my own seventies, I can attest to both the joy and the rigor of this seminary. I will always vividly remember faculty like Rollie Fairbanks, Eugene Goetchius, Jon Westerhoff, Emma Benignus, Gregor Goethals, and many others. It is heartbreaking to see that in 2016 we’re no longer up to the sacrifices required if we are to fully value love and justice as much as our pursuit of wealth and power. In the end, I plan to do all I can to support the EDS mission as it evolves and to help the learned ministry of a great seminary live on in the works its students, faculty, and fellow stewards of the mystery of life in Jesus Christ. +++ Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Tampa, FL Dr. William A Flint, MDiv, PhD says: July 22, 2016 at 7:46 am Endowing scholarships can be done at a sustainable rate that doesn’t deplete the endowment. This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 The Rev. Donald B Hill says: Rector Pittsburgh, PA July 25, 2016 at 8:44 pm The church has more community organizers than it has parish priest. It is a sad day when seminaries close especially good seminaries. The church will suffer. July 22, 2016 at 4:59 pm The Rev’d Hanahan speaks my mind and heart. Thank you! While not without a significant sense of grief, I do thoroughly believe that this difficult situation can serve to strengthen our participation in the ever-coming and ever-present reign of God. We are not Episcopalians/Anglicans, first and then followers of Jesus; we are followers of Jesus – first and foremost – that happen to have been called into relationship with the Almighty in and through the Episcopal/Anglican Church! I have no personal connection to EDS, but being formed through the rigorous education and loving debate and relational sharing of Bexley Hall (in it’s Rochester, NY-Colgate-Rochester-Crozier Divinity School iteration) has been a great and wonderful blessing by which I am still reaping benefits. I became a stronger Episcopalian through the work done with some brilliant and committed (some not so “broad-minded”) ecumenical faculty and students. Incidentally, I was not a residential student, but still experienced the richness of the community and came away fully formed in my Episcopal/Anglican identity. While I mourn anytime one of our institutions feels forced to consider a significant change, I am reminded that the Holy Spirit is still at work and that our faith and our church are living, breathing, dynamic organisms. Through the prophecy of Isaiah, could this not be our God (again) asking: “I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?” Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Press Release Service William R.

Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME July 24, 2016 at 8:45 am Once again, another short sighted decision on the part of the Episcopal Church. This situation did not just happen overnight. Why was this not being addressed years ago? Where were the administrators and trustees? If the Episcopal Church has reached this point, maybe we should just dissolve it as opposed to watching it slowly and painfully disappear. August 25, 2016 at 5:06 pm Minorities are not ‘oppressed’ in this society. They are neglected to a degree. The neglect is manifest in the tolerance the civic leadership has for street crime and school disorder in slum neighborhoods, as well as for tax policies which damage the built environment. Seminary-based social justice warriors are, if anything, injurious to a project of social improvement which requires vigorous law enforcement and school discipline as its salient feature. (Instead, they bleat nonsense about the ‘disadvantaged’ and ‘mass incarceration’). Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Bath, NC July 22, 2016 at 10:51 am One solution for the closing of seminaries is the humbling, yet ultimately practical and joyful move to join forces for the good and important role of residential seminaries that are ecumenical. A residential, ecumenical seminary is a unique and valuable learning community which broadens relationships among future clergy, promotes broader and deeper, more challenging learning and teaching, and mirrors the population. With strong academics as a foundation taught by a slate of broad-minded ecumenical professors tenured in in their academic fields and churches, their seminarians may begin to see themselves and other seminarians less as categorical slogan-shielded Christ-owning soldiers locked into one (“the true one!”) denomination and more as open minded, Christian, Spirit-led, fallible but relationship seekers after God’s truth in Jesus Christ. And in turn these seminary graduates may then see people not as needful of one denomination or another but who need the loving God. Ecumenically educated priests with a substantial varied-in-approach education can see this truism that translates after ordination into the priest’s broad spectrum call with social justice being one of many other partners in every call. July 22, 2016 at 9:58 pm I agree with Rev Ralph Pitman. I graduated from. ETS, not EDS. I did learn to do theology there, not parish ministry. Although Katie and I became Orthodox Christians 45 years ago we did it because we were attracted to the depth and beauty of that long tradition. I have been an Orthodox priest for 41+ years. And a chaplain in USAF. I am grateful for what ETS/Weston/Harvard gave us—they together transformed our life forever. We were there when they were strong and struggling for identity. They approached this struggle with a theological integrity that is rare and for that I have great respect. I gave up any right to comment on this when we became Orthodox, but that does not diminish my respect for what that community has done. James L. Bowditch, Ph.D,: Board 1989-99, Director of Development 2000-2003 says: Bob Stephenson says: Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Curate Diocese of Nebraska Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Shreveport, LA Ronald Davin says: An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET August 17, 2016 at 3:11 pm I totally agree as well. While EDS’s strategy was once worthwhile, it is clear now that it was ephemeral, which is to say superficial. Today’s unconventional strategy would be a return to basics in religion and theology—saving souls, exploring the place of religion in secular culture. Above all, do not slide along with the sad decline of conventional Protestantism into oblivion. July 21, 2016 at 5:00 pm I attended this meeting and was stunned when I first heard the resolution. Discussion among the Board was contentious, some were angry, and others understood the reasons for the decision. It is more than economic; the culture has changed and so has our Church. It is time for transforming our understanding of theological education to meet the challenges of today. EDS and its former institutions have always been leaders for social justice and the ethical issues we face in our society. The School must now transition into an innovative and imaginative place that affirms religious pluralism and serves the church and society with love and spiritual vitality for all people. The shape of our institutional future is filled with hope for new life. Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Albany, NY July 23, 2016 at 4:44 pm It is a good thing that Jesus and the early church did not make decisions based on money and prosperity! Maybe the trustees should consult Donald Trump since he is “the only one who can fix it?” The alumni certainly do not agree with the manner in which the trustees went about making this decision.

Using three heat sources, the Babyleo helps to keep infants at their ideal body temperature at all times. This is vital because the infant’s energy is directed toward growth and development, rather than to keeping warm.The Babyleo also features low sound and light levels to create a womblike atmosphere, and has advanced safeguards against infection. Its “kangaroo mode” allows parents to more closely interact with their baby.All this technology has the net effect of helping to allow premature babies to stay healthy, to better bond with their parents, and to ultimately go home sooner, said Dr. Rajan Wadhawan, medical director of neonatology of Florida Hospital for Children.“Our joint mission with Dräger to bring innovative and effective technology for pre-term babies and their families is a tremendous step in the right direction because it creates the safest environment possible for them to grow and develop,” said Dr. Rajan Wadhawan, chief medical officer and medical director of neonatology at Florida Hospital for Children. “This global partnership not only improves babies’ care, but also makes interaction easier and safer for parents, due to state-of-the-art features that promote parent participation and skin-to-skin experience.”For Dräger, which is based in Germany, Florida Hospital was a natural fit to demonstrate the capabilities of the Babyleo.“The Babyleo has proven very successful in Europe, and we are eager to bring it to premature babies and their families here in the United States and Canada,” said President and Regional CEO North America for Dräger, Lothar Thielen. “Florida Hospital’s reputation for innovation and world-class care made it an ideal organization to work with.”When the rollout is complete, 73 of the beds will be in use. Fifty-three of those will be at Florida Hospital for Women in Orlando, with 10 each at Florida Hospital Altamonte and Florida Hospital Celebration Health.

An idea should be so wholly thought out and executed that the design rules and logic are obvious to anyone, even if it is at the most elementary level. Paul Rudolph, 1918-1997, understood without a doubt how to successfully design a building that could be read for what it was conceived to be, as is the case with the Milam Residence of Jacksonville, Florida.Save this picture!© Ouno DesignRecommended ProductsDoorsLonghiDoor – HeadlineWindowsVitrocsaMinimalist Window – SlidingDoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedUsing concrete to yield a front facade that is readable even from a distance, Rudolph explores the separation of interior and exterior spaces as the framework exhibited is independent of the structure behind it. Although detached from the program of the house, the rectangles and squares of the orthogonal facade occasionally relate interior rooms at various levels by the formation of sun screens, making the design both visually stimulating and functional.Paul Rudolph is known for his intensity and his consistent use of complex floor plans which is evident in this residence as much as in his other buildings. The planning of this house beckoned a new design methodology for Rudolph, one about a rigid modular organizational system. Save this picture!The spatial variety and satiation of vertical and horizontal spaces are differentiated by frames, walls and floors which are extended to create varying volumes according to program. In this example, spatial organization has overpowered structural organization, and the design is thoughtfully considered first by the uses of space.Save this picture!The walls and floors are elongated to create elaborate forms which extend south towards a seaside view of the Atlantic Ocean. One of the very few structural purposes served ny these patterns is to block the rays of the blazing Florida sun in high temperatures. These brises-soleil also act as mullians for the glazed windows, turning the exterior wall into a set of deep openings that are filled only with glass.Save this picture!© Ouno DesignOn the east and west sides of the residence, the dramatic sculptural extrusions were designed as counterparts to reinforce the sectional design and strategy which so wonderfully defines the characteristics of the Milam Residence. The scheme of this project is relatable to the boxes which were explored and experimented with in the Umbrella and Deering houses.Save this picture!Although these strong angles stand out against the grassy hillside and flat beaches that meet it, the juxtaposition of surfaces does not come across as unappealing or unconsidered. Standard in almost all of Rudolph’s designs, the residence is constructed of fair-faced concrete floor slabs and then finished with terrazzo and undulating acoustic tiles.Save this picture!The floor plan is designed around a central and long double-height living room space, which is lowered two steps below an overlooking dining area to one side and a study area to the other, creating a sitting well. The stairs also translate into functional seating, which makes movable furniture superfluous.The shifting of a floor platform and changes of elevation conform to specific spatial characteristics. Rudolph aimed to create a variety of moods with a consideration of the programmatic needs of the occupants, “the reading area with its low ceiling and corresponding wall of books, the high ceiling of the main living area with its recessed seating, or the nestlike inglenook set on a level between the living room and the overlook.The dining room has a perennial view of the beach and the sea out of a large framed window. Rudolph must have viewed this centralized layout as being successful as many of the subsequent projects he completed had a similar system.Rudolph was consistently pushing towards “a renewed concern for visual delight. This is indeed the architect’s prime responsibility, for other specialists can do everything else that he does and, quite often, much better.”Houses•Jacksonville, United Statescenter_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/86126/ad-classics-milam-residence-paul-rudolph Clipboard “COPY” Projects 1961 Houses “COPY” Photographs ArchDailylast_img read more
